Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) refers to the installation and use of fiber-optic cables to carry digital information directly to homes and businesses. These cables are made up of anywhere from 1 fiber to hundreds of fiber optics, which are long, thin strands of pure glass about the diameter of a human hair.
FTTH replaces the duplicate infrastructure that telephone companies previously installed in neighborhoods. Fiber has a higher bandwidth capacity and can easily transmit applications like telephone, internet, and IPTV with plenty of capacity left over for other applications in the future.
FTTH provides many benefits to Minford Telephone Company customers including:
Yes, either an outdoor ONT (Optical Network Terminal) housing or a transition box will be mounted to the exterior of your home or business, depending on what type of ONT will be used for the installation.
In addition to the outside box, Minford Telephone Company will provide (unless the option is waived by the customer) a battery backup unit that will be installed inside the home. The purpose of this box is to provide up to 8 hours of emergency battery backup time for the dial tone only in the event of a power outage at the home or business. A 24-hour battery backup option is also available, but the customer will be charged for this option.
